Forbes has released their list of the movie stars that actually bring in the big bucks!
They took a look at all the data on the actor’s earnings, the grosses at the box office, and how well their last three films did. Let’s see who made the list!
The ladies of Hollywood actually dominate the list this year, with Emma Stone, Mila Kunis, and Jennifer Lawrence landing in the top 3.
This is the list you want to make in Hollywood because it shows you are worth the money spent on hiring you for the part.
Forbes took a look at the past three movies they starred in (excluding animated films) and found Emma Stone makes the best return at $80.70 for every $1 she was paid.
Returns $80.70 for every $1 paid.
Emma Stone topped their list, with her largest grossing movie being “The Amazing Spider-Man”, which made a whopping $752 million at the box office globally.
Returns $68.70 for every $1 paid.
The stunning Mila Kunis came in second place, bringing in $68.70 for every dollar she made. The 30-year-old brunette beauty shows she can bring in the moolah in comedy films such as “Ted” and fantasy movies such as “Oz: The Great and Powerful”.
Returns $68.60 for every $1 paid.
Lawrence trails closely behind Kunis by giving an average $68.6 for every penny she was paid. She has two big movies in 2012 – “The Hunger Games” and Oscar-winning “Silver Linings Playbook”.
The 23-year-old movie star received less than $1 million for the first “Hunger Games”, but earned more for the sequel “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”. It made over $760 million worldwide, becoming the fourth-highest grossing film of 2013.
Returns $31.30 for every $1 paid.
Natalie Portman remains a great investment, bringing in $31.30 for every $1. Portman made a good decision starring in “Thor”.
Returns $31.10 for every $1 paid.
The highest-ranked male actor this year is Dwayne Johnson aka “the Rock”.
Johnson may be able to demand big bucks if his latest movie “Hercules” is a hit. He had two bit hits at the box office, “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” and “Fast and Furious 6”. The former wrestler-turned-actor also tops Forbes’ 2013 Highest-Grossing Actor ahead of “Iron Man” star Robert Downey Jr. Not too shabby!
Earns $25.60 for every $1 paid.
Daniel Craig’s most recent Bond movie earned $1 billion at the box office. It appears this actor is a good bet to bring in the cash!
Now let’s check out the other stars that made up the list!
Returns $25.60 for every $1 paid.
Returns $25 for every $1 paid.
Returns $23.50 for every $1 paid.
Returns $21.40 for every $1 paid.
Lautner’s return is a little lower than his Twilight costars’ because of the movie “Abduction”. We think he should be required to be shirtless in his movies. His return rate will be so much better!
